Last week the flash boot memory of a CAN controller on Sumbandila was
corrupted by a probable radiation event. It does not affect
satellite health but prevents activation of the amateur radio
repeater, as the particular script detects an anomaly and aborts.
The same problem also occurred in October of 2009 and was corrected.
However, the fix requires time consuming effort, which cannot be
SO-67 repeater activations are therefore suspended. We apologise for
any disappointment and hope to return to normal operations somewhere
